"That's a great idea for a trade! Do you have a figure for how much a single share works out to in labor hours for you? If one weekly share represents, say, 10 hours of labor for you then I'd think 10 hours of preservation should be asked…"

"Give Katie at Full Plate Collective a call. Because their CSA is a collective, she may have some good ideas about setting up terms. I won't post her # here, but I can send it if you message me, or it is on their website."

CSA Preservation Share- HELP!

Every year I do a fair share of preserving since using as much of our own produce and food is very important to us (and it's the yummiest).

persephone doliner replied to Monica Sherman's discussion Kitchen Advice in the group Master Home Food Preservers
"That's what I hear. It may be possible to go take it in another NY town this year. Try writing to Carole Fisher, Co-op Ext.'s preserving educator, for info., & to let her know you want to do it. Carole recently joined IthaCan."

"Seph - I know when we made jam together in March that we talked briefly about the Master Food Preserver course. Will it really not be run again until next year? I was kinda hoping to take it this year, too."
